Don't remember that one, but Caldwell seems the type a guy to get sent off.

Did Fez or Afoa not pick up a red before Payne? Fez' was over turned IFRR ... Afoa was away home when the hearing was on ... his ban only lasted as long as his holiday ...

Pretty sure it was Caldwell for stamping on an Embra player.

Fez and Afoa got citings ( kind of retro reds) but not red carded AFAIK.

The other ones I recall more recently were against us. Grewcock for Bath and a Dragon for kneeing somebody in the head at Ravers.

Big Ryan is a sort of default setting ... he had more yellow cards than a Chinese conscientious objectors prison ...

Ridiculous ban. No harm. No intent and twats like Hartley get three weeks for a deliberate elbow in the gob.

Did Cave not get sent off for taking the man out in the air and then didn't he try to switch positions and generally pi$h everyone off?

You're thinking of the classic 15-15 draw in Galway when the great Emerick deserved red but got yellow for GBH on a Weshtie. He did however manage to score a try & get sent off playing for the Eagles, RWC game from memory but I woud;t rely on my memory for much.
